Happy Halloween from Jigsaw's Lair!

We are here once again on the day that it is considered GOOD to be frightened! Some of us love being frightened every day of the year but you have to enjoy the holiday anyway... I have been going through my DVD's looking for my copy of Halloween(1978 original of course) and I have chosen a few other traditional horror movies for a start. I like Friday the 13th(1980), A Nightmare on Elm Street(1984), Silver Bullet.

For my not so obvious picks I would say Poltergeist might be nice for a change and maybe The Legend of Hell House. I also like Suspiria and Tenebre for a change of pace. Dark Night of the Scarecrow is another movie that would be fun. If you are looking for slashers, then maybe My Bloody Valentine(1981),The Prowler, The House on Sorority Row (1983).  There are so many great movies to watch and so little time that I guess you have to be choosy. I can only say what I like and even though I would love to watch tons of movies today, it's not possible. Trick or Treat(1986) is a fun offering and it is worth a look. Trick r Treat is a 2009 anthology with some interesting stories; it is sort of like Twilight Zone etc. Try House(1986) for some harmless fun. Of course I couldn't leave out the Saw franchise for Halloween. My personal favourites are Saw 1 and 2.

There you have it. These movies are just a tiny selection of my favourites so if you like the, put them on tonight and have fun!!Happy Halloween....

Sounds like a great Halloween. Times have changed so much since I was a kid. We spent weeks thinking about what we wanted to be, then weeks coming up with the material to MAKE our costume. Finally the day came we made it, put it on, and went door to door trick or treating.

Now it's buy a costume on clearance the day after to put under the bed until the following year. Then a quick trip to the mall to get a handful of candy from each store.

Sad, but another downgrade in fun.

But we're home early and Halloween 1978 sounds good as soon as the kids are in bed, their tummies aching.
